  1. The source of morality for everyone according to atheists is evolutionary psychology. "We are survival machines -- robot vehicles blindly programmed to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes" - Richard Dawkins. The source of morality for theists according to theists is the divine Logos. "All this is for habitation by the Lord, whatsoever is individual universe of movement in the universal motion. By that renounced thou shouldst enjoy; lust not after any man's possession." (Isha Upanishad, verse 1) "Doing verily works in this world one should wish to live a hundred yea
  2. Based on the Cell and Molecular Biology textbook I have tight junctions are specialized regions whose main function is to maintain a different environment between the inter-cellular space than that environment which exists outside that tissue i.e. only certain bio-molecules can enter into the cell and exit out of the cell with in a tissue and Desmosomes are of two types Spot and Belt Desomosomes and their main function is cell adhesion.
  3. I did not admitted that. All of Buddhism including the Four Noble Truths is encompassed in the Atiyoga/Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Repeating the same thing again and again is simply a waste of time, it only displays your ignorance on the subject. As I promised secular Buddhists have no future and their views will be corrected by scholars and its a waste of time arguing with them. Dzogchen Rinpoche (2007: p. 89) holds that: "When we study and practice the so-called lower and higher yanas, we might hear that the most sublime, or the pinnacle of all teachings
  4. The higher schools of Buddhism see Buddha as a living person in the eternal realm and that slams secular Buddhism explicitly. So please go and find a different religion, you cannot justify your distorted visions and yet maintain that we hold the correct version of Buddhism. The Vajrayana tradition or the Nyingma culminates all the teachings of Buddha and hence it is called as the path of perfection. What you're doing at best is cherry picking, so secular Buddhists please don't interfere into issues which you have got no idea and stop distorting the teachings of Buddhism, you guys just
  5. Nope, they are the only one's who have preserved the soul of Buddhism and they revere Buddha more than the secular slayers of Buddhism. There is a word for those who reject Buddhist Cosmology, hypocrites or cherry pickers. Do you know what Tibetan Buddhists believe in? Really, you just don't and you have got no idea.
  6. LoL, the western Buddhists and orthodox Christians are infants when compared to the wisdom and understanding of traditional eastern Buddhists and the early Christians. Yes, the secular Buddhists are under a deep illusion and they claim they know more about Buddhism than the locals? LoL. No one laughs at them more than we do.
  7. That's a view known as Hinayana meaning the lower school, you are ignorant of the higher schools of Buddhism. Who told that's what Christian cosmology is? Only psychic Christians who interpret the Bible too literally accept such a cosmology. The psychic Christians will not receive anything. "Those who say they will die first and then rise are in error. If they do not first receive the resurrection while they live, when they die they will receive nothing." (Gospel of Philip) The early pneumatic Christians believed in the Pleroma and this is the cosmogony of Christians and
  8. The Pali canon is not the only source of Buddhism, what about the Mahayana Sutras and the Vajrayana Tantras which was taught by the eternal Buddha, you might just go on to say that Mahayana Buddhists are not Buddhists at all. LOL, you're a cherry picker aren't you?
  9. My argument is quite simple actually a Buddhist must adhere himself to the Buddhist cosmology and anyone who doesn't adhere himself or accept this cosmology is not a Buddhist. You cannot call yourself a Buddhist and define your distorted vision of Buddhism like this--> "Karma, at least in Buddhism, is defined as the results of actions taken by volition - nothing more, nothing less. Perhaps you were thinking of karma as a mystic force?" It is a false pretence, you claim to be one thing and preach something else entirely, the correct word is hypocrite and that's what should have b
  10. Yes, its a false pretence for you claim you're a Buddhist and what you're doing is slaying Buddha by defining your own flawed definition of Buddhism for the rest of us. I very well know who comes to Christianity and Buddhism for other reasons and who comes to become Christ and to attain Buddha nature. Vajrayana is based on esoteric teachings of Buddha and hence it was kept secret and was passed on orally, just because it was not written down doesn't mean the historical Buddha did not taught those teachings. "According to this view, there were three "turnings of the wheel of dha
  11. You're an hypocrite, I am telling you its not too late either find yourself an another religion or just be an atheist, there is nothing wrong with it but please don't distort the doctrines of Buddhism. http://www.dharmadownload.net/pages/english/Natsok/0010_Teaching_English/Teaching_English_0074.htm If you don't know what happens between the time after your death and your next rebirth then read the above teachings of bardo, saying that there is no mystic force is off the mark by a long way. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  12. No, science has affirmed that its right. That's an old myth, people in the educated masses both religious and non-religious knew that the earth was spherical. What happened to Galileo was unfortunate. "Christopher Columbus's efforts to obtain support for his voyages were not hampered by a European belief in a flat Earth. Sailors and navigators of the time knew that the Earth was roughly spherical, but (correctly) disagreed with Columbus's estimate of the distance to India, which was approximately one-sixth of the actual distance. If the Americas did not exist, and had Columbus con
  13. I think the OP is talking about this. Mathametical Universe hypothesis In physics and cosmology, the mathematical universe hypothesis (MUH), also known as the Ultimate Ensemble, is a speculative "theory of everything" (TOE) proposed by the theoretical physicist, Max Tegmark Definition of the EnsembleJ├╝rgen Schmidhuber [6] argues that "Although Tegmark suggests that '... all mathematical structures are a priori given equal statistical weight', there is no way of assigning equal nonvanishing probability to all (infinitely many) mathematical structures". Schmidhuber puts forward a
  14. This is a much better one. http://people.uncw.edu/moyerc/QMTools/home.htm
  15. A simple google search reveals that it was published. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0375960100006125 That paper was not cited to offer support for the view that consciousness plays a role in wavefunction collapse, it was cited to refute your claim that any environmental decoherence collapses the wavefunction.
